Nii Ofoli Gakpo II, the Head of Family of Abola Piam Tunma-We of Accra, has called on the Ga Traditional Council to help prevent installation of wrong chiefs to bring peace in the Ga State.
He said the unwarranted claims by some people as chiefs in Ga Mashie with the support of land-guards have disturbed the peace and the development of the area and should not be encouraged.
Nii Gakpo made the call at a news conference to refute some claim that the Abola Piam Tunma-We had installed a Dzaasetse.
He said the claim was false and a calculated attempt to stir controversy among the people, adding that the Abola Piam Family did not occupy such position to install chiefs.
“Abola Piam Tunma-We being a Royal House of the Ga Paramountcy will not arrogate to itself authority that it does not possess,” adding that the installation of Dzaasetse is the prerogative of some recognised houses and not us,” he said.
Nii Okropong IV, a Divisional Head of the Ga Paramount Stool in an interview with the Ghana News Agency urged the Traditional Council to treat the purported installation of the Dzaasetse with the contempt it served.
He said: “It’s about time we ensure total peace in Accra,” adding that to the best of his knowledge Abola Piam had not installed or designated any person to act on their behalf in any matter pertaining to the family.
